Real Madrid exhibited a wardrobe, a differential factor to aspire to the title of a competition as long as the League, in which it maintains the lead, with the resounding victory against Mallorca (6-1) in which Marco Asensio vindicated himself by scoring three goals in his first title of the course and with the Frenchman Karim Benzema, double assists and goals, maintaining his excellent football level.
The Italian Carlo Ancelotti, protagonist in the last games due to his changes that were decisive in achieving the victories, was once again with his approach against Mallorca. The rotations went well and his study of the visitors’ 4-4-2 set the game on track soon.
An error by the rookie Josep Gaya also helped. At 21, he made his debut in LaLiga Santander in a Santiago Bernabeu, still under construction, and he did not have a great start. In a pass, a priori, simple, he lost control and slipped when trying to correct the error. Benzema stole the ball, was left alone against Manolo Reina and did not forgive. Seven goals in six games.
Real Madrid came easy, but Mallorca too. The great must of the madridistas at this start of the season is the fragility at the back and the visitors warned before taking advantage of it, but already down 2-0 on the scoreboard.
There is an unwritten law in football, that of the ex, which says that whoever was your player is going to mark you. This Wednesday there were three on the pitch: Asensio (former Mallorca) and Take Kubo and Aleix Febas (former Real Madrid, the former still under contract with the team from the Spanish capital); and he was the first to apply it. And in a triple game, the third time he has achieved it in his career after doing it with the Spanish under-21 team on June 17, 2017 against North Macedonia in the European Championship of the category.
It was his day to vindicate himself and he didn’t waste it. Substitute in all games until this Wednesday and two goals. Midfielder, the new position that Ancelotti attributed to him, and he proved his worth in ‘Carletto”s plan of playing with the Brazilians Vinicius and Rodrygo very open so that Asensio could break inside and form a four for four unsustainable for the defense from Majorca.
The first came in the 24th minute, to which the visitors reacted with a goal from South Korea’s Kang-In Lee as soon as he put the ball into play, taking advantage of the fact that Militao was left exposed by seeking anticipation. But Asensio’s second only took four minutes to arrive. Benzema’s save, forward-facing control of spur and goal. Too easy.
A 3-1 that pleased the Madridistas who attended the Santiago Bernabeu at 10:00 p.m. on a Wednesday night and who also enjoyed every control and robbery by the Frenchman Eduardo Camavinga, playing where he likes the most, in front of the defense. and showing that he can rest the Brazilian Casemiro.
But above all, Ancelotti liked it, that with three games in six days there is no better way to rest playing than getting the first of the games on track before the first half hour. And he was able to extend it as soon as he returned from the break, but Benzema’s second goal was annulled by the referee Alberola Rojas after seeing it on the video arbitration system (VAR) monitor due to the Frenchman’s foul on Joan Sastre when making room for the shot.
Luis Garcia Plaza tried to correct the hole with the entry of Baba for Kubo, but Real Madrid played at a different speed. Militao got ahead of Febas in his field and ran until Asensio’s hat-trick arrived, who led with ease in front of the area and showed off his great shot, putting a 4-1 that ended any hope of Mallorca.
Camavinga received a standing ovation when he was substituted at minute 60, Asensio received the same 11 minutes later… Ancelotti continued to give his team a rest, already thinking about Saturday’s game (9:00 p.m.) against Villarreal, who Benzema will arrive even more fit. Before going to the bench he had time, in minute 78, to control a long ball with his back, between the central defenders, and sign his brace. Eight goals and seven assists in seven games.
Even Isco, who started two consecutive games but lost his place, was able to redeem himself in minute 84 with the 6-1 that closed the game and his scoring drought, since he had not scored since February 26, 2020.
